Fr. Quigley Offers Reflections on Virtues during Lent
Providence, R.I.—A Providence College Dominican’s weekly videos on virtues will guide viewers through this Lenten season.
Rev. James F. Quigley, O.P. ’60, who serves as associate chaplain of the National Alumni Association, is offering short reflections based on lessons from his book, Living Well: Meditations on the Virtues (Gregorian and Biblical Press, 2010). The videos are posted on the Office of Mission and Ministry’s Web site.
Father Quigley’s first segment discusses gratitude and references the Parable of Workers in the Vineyard from the Gospel of Matthew, addressing questions of generosity and thankfulness.
“All of life can be a continuous exchange of gifts, and giving thanks is really essential to keeping the world going,” he said during the 10-minute video.
Ensuing videos in the six-part series will provide reflections on other virtues, including forgiveness, compassion, trust, courage, and faith.
